Michigan's football program announced this afternoon some major future scheduling news. A non-conference series has been terminated.

The Wolverines announced that the future games against Virginia Tech, set to occur in 2020 and 2021, will not be happening. That series has been terminated. The schools remain in contact about a potential future series, but it's off for now.

Michigan's non-conference series against Washington remains on. The Wolverines and the Huskies will meet in 2020 at Washington. They'll play in Ann Arbor in 2021.

Here's the full release from Michigan:

"The home-and-home series with Virginia Tech scheduled for the 2020 and 2021 seasons has been terminated, with potential future dates to be discussed at a later date; Michigan has agreed to pay VT a $375,000 cancellation fee. The two programs were set to meet in Ann Arbor on Sept. 19, 2020, and in Blacksburg on Sept. 11, 2021.

The game with the University of Washington will move up a week in the 2021 schedule. The Wolverines and Huskies will square off at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 11, 2021, instead of the previously announced date of Sept. 18. The two schools will open the 2020 season against each other on Sept. 5 at Huskies Stadium in Seattle.

Michigan will face Arkansas State on Sept. 19, 2020, at Michigan Stadium. This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools in football."
